After days of unrest, the white officer who knelt on the Black man’s neck was charged with third-degree murder. Floyd’s family wants the other officers arrested, too.
The mayor told reporters, "I will encode what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It's two words: It begins with 'F' and it ends with 'U.'"
Later in the day, the president expressed his "deepest condolences" to George Floyd's family. Earlier, he tweeted that protesters in Minneapolis were “thugs.”
On Twitter, the first lady called for "peace, prayers & healing" and offered condolences to Floyd's family.
The Minnesota senator said it is "absolutely false" that she declined to prosecute the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck for a separate 2006 killing.
"Inflammatory rhetoric" isn't "helpful," chides Gov. Larry Hogan, who dealt with unrest after the death of Freddie Gray in police custody in Baltimore in 2015.
The former vice president censured President Trump for his "incendiary tweets."
A presidential visit can also put pressure on NASA managers to launch in iffy conditions. No president has ever attended a "first" launch of a crewed spacecraft.
The former president said he feels the same anguish that millions of others do over the killing of another unarmed Black man.
A line originally used by an aggressive Miami police chief prompted Twitter to issue another content warning for the president's tweets.
